Abstract

The purpose of this Act is to promote the production of renewable energy sources in accordance with climatic, environmental and socio-economic considerations and in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, security of supply and reducing emissions of CO2 and other green-house gases. The Act applies to land or offshore areas, as well as the exclusive economic zone. Energinet.dk is the supervising authority for the registration, use and supply of energy originated from wind turbines. The Climate, Energy and Building Ministry shall implement a green scheme which can approve and grant subsidies for initiatives undertaken to promote local installation of new onshore wind turbines connected on 21 February 2008, or later - with the exception of wind turbines connected to their own consumption installation as per article 41 (granted subsidy to wind turbines of 25 kW maximum capacity). These provisions refer to electricity produced by wind turbines connected to the grid 1 January 2014 or later, and to electricity produced by wind turbines connected to the grid during the period from and including 21 February 2008 until 31 December 2013.
